Detail of the Week

Lace bowls.

Some pieces force you stop in your tracks and stare for a few moments—like these. "A refined and emotionally poetic object of intense tactility and visual softness. Oriental embroidery pattern meets Western elegant lace. These bowls express wedding blessing that Chinese mothers give to their daughters. The porcelain's gradient transparency plays with light that almost penetrates the membrane–like surface which is thinner on the top and thicker on the bottom." I am completely enamored with these artful, delicate pieces, by Yii, as well as their meaning and expression. Click here to browse through more of their work. Just incredible!

  12. Sarah, the bowls are amazing....it's definitely my kind of inspiration! Already dozens of ideas running through my head. Thanks for the beautiful post and for all kind words and support on patchwork :-)!

  13. Sara, what master pieces. Tried to find out if these can be purchased somehere in the west. But I did learn on another site that the project "Yii" (a brand by the Taiwan craft institute) aims to transform traditional Taiwanese crafts into more contemporary design.

    I think they have succeded.

    A warm hug to you, Mon
